It’s a sure sign of spring in the Lower Mainland.
The Abbotsford Tulip Festival is back for another season, and although last week only 30 of the three million tulips had bloomed, the fields are now awash with colour as far as the eye can see.

With over 35 different varieties of tulips and 10 acres of breathtaking views, the festival also includes a children’s play area, a flower market, a U-Pick area to take home your very own bouquet, food trucks on site, and games for the whole family to enjoy.
The annual event, located at 36737 North Parallel Road in Abbotsford, runs every day from dawn to dusk, until May 7.
